The London Olympics and the Need For Thinking in Advance

This post, as with others on this blog, is not intended to contain all the data there is on the subject covered. What I hope to present is an overview through which it will be possible to gestalt the situation. Links are provided throughout…, for a reason, (links with an asterisk are essential reading). Without the data accessed through them, the picture you’re left with is still general, albeit valuable. The ramifications of the information provided here have the potential to affect every one of us. I wouldn’t have spent as much time as its taken to put this together to do so if I didn’t consider it important. An official is quoted herein as saying that this, the Olympics, will be a defining moment. Read this and you’ll see how much of a defining moment it could turn out to be. Forewarned is forearmed.

Read it, save it, share it.

This post was inspired on reading a message that’s doing the rounds. The message comes from a campaign called One Voice For The Kids and calls for a national blockade of principle UK major roads on the 25th of July. The stated intention of the action is to “bring about justice for our children and those victims of illegal practices performed by statutory bodies”.

Now whilst I would agree that the Social Services System needs reforming, and that Social Services need to be made accountable for their inappropriate conduct (to put it mildly), I’m not sure that a blanket blockading of motorways and A-roads is the best way to move such a campaign forward. As it happens, I’m all for such type of direct action and have engaged in a few myself over the last twenty some years (as a passive observer of course!) The main reason for my reluctance in this instance is based on the timing, the 25th of this month, two days before the beginning of the London Olympics.

It could be said that the date is perfectly timed for maximum disruption and thus would achieve its aim quickly. I would agree that the shutting down of major UK roads two days before the Olympics would be likely to provoke a swift reaction from the authorities, but feel that would be just the excuse for them to establish a high level of security control prior to the start of the games. When I say ‘high level of control’ I mean the enforcing of those unsettling parts of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act and the Anti-Terrorist Act that allow the government to arrest, detain, hold, exclude, restrict, et cetera, ad nauseum. I’m also thinking about the 2006 London Olympic Games Act which empowers not only the army and police, but also private security forces to deal with “security issues” using physical force. These “security issues” have been broadly defined to include everything from “terrorism” to peaceful protesters, to labour unions, to people selling bootleg Olympic products on the streets, to taking down any corporate presence that doesn’t have the Olympic seal of approval. To help them with the last part, there will be “brand protection teams” set loose around the city. These “teams” will also operate inside Olympic venues to make sure no one “wears clothes or accessories with commercial messages other than the manufacturers who are official sponsors”. It has been pointed out that the powers were so broad they would potentially give private contractors the right to forcibly enter people’s homes and seize materials.

To get an idea of how hyped up the authorities are you only have to look at the ‘preparations’ in and around London, which feature as many as 48,000 security forces. 13,500 troops (more than Britain has in Afghanistan), surface-to-air missiles stationed on top of residential buildings, an aircraft carrier in the Thames. There’s also the mentioned, but as yet unconfirmed, deployment of the Active Denial System (ADS) type of non-lethal weapon that uses microwaves to cause intense pain at distance, brought to you, if we’re going to be corporate, by those pioneers of peace, Raytheon, who incidentally could be the makers of the drone planes that will be cruising the skies above London. Combat helicopters. An 18-kilometre electrified fence, ringed with trained agents and 55 teams of attack dogs. Add to that “scanners, biometric ID cards, number-plate and facial-recognition CCTV systems, disease tracking systems, new police control centres and checkpoints” (obviously some of those having already been in place for some time), and I think it safe to assume that even the slightest action or provocation of any sociopolitical kind will trigger an extreme, over-the-top reaction.

A recent incident demonstrates my point. On Thurs 5th  July, on the UK’s M6 motorway, near Lichfield, Staffordshire, the kind of public alertness that anti-terrorist investigators encourage led to the evacuation of 48 passengers from a coach and the closure of the motorway for seven hours, when a passenger apparently mistook a fake, electronic cigarette that gave off a vapour for a bomb.

The alarm was raised when a passenger saw an individual, described as of Asian appearance, pouring what they believed was liquid into a bag that was emitting vapours, the police said. The passenger alerted the driver, who called the police.

A full multi-agency response was put into motion, with an army bomb disposal team, a chemical and biological weapons team, armed police, counter-terrorism officers, ambulance and fire crews, called to the scene.

Many are the clamouring voices saying that the Security Service’s response was appropriate in order to prevent what could have been a………(fill in the dramatic noun of your choice). Shazia Mirza’s comment piece in The Guardian tackles the same point saying, “Of course people will say the police had to take the threat seriously and react quickly, but it wasn’t so long ago that the police thought they were nipping a terrorist attack in the bud but ended up shooting an innocent Brazilian dead.”

Mirza’s piece, Megabus scare: where there’s smoke, beware of brown men on buses (which is well worth a read) highlights a too-little discussed aspect of the situation, racial stereotyping. The presence of such meaning that “being a brown man at an airport automatically makes you suspicious, and that being a brown man with a rucksack on the tube means you get a whole carriage to yourself.”

To those who would disagree, scoff, or otherwise contradict the above, I say, check this out:

Racial stereotyping has been the case in the context of ‘the terrorist threat’ for sometime now. Again, as Miza comments “the person who alerted the police must have thought: brown face + smoke = terrorist. That’s like saying white hair + leprechaun T-shirt = IRA. But we no longer fear people who look like Father Ted, we fear people who looked like a tanned-up version of Jesus. My Irish friends are sitting at home thinking, “Well at least it’s not us” and who can blame them. There was a time when being Irish meant you were guilty – all of you. The Birmingham six and the Guildford four weren’t guilty, they were Irish.”

Recently though, the stereotype profile being promoted is that of the ‘radicalised homegrown terrorist’. Once was a time when the likelihood of radicalisation was anticipated predominantly from Asian Muslims, as the above Metropolitan Police poster blatantly implies. In fact, in April 2007 the £12.5m Home Office funded-project, Channel, was set up as part of the government’s wider Prevent counterterrorism programme. The project encouraged teachers and community leaders to identify and report Muslim teenagers and others they suspected to be at risk of becoming radicalised. If a child returned from a visit to, for instance, Pakistan or India, expressing increased religious and/or political views, teachers were expected to report them to a board run by government counterterrorism agencies. In the first 20 months of its operation 228 people aged 15 to 24 and nearly all male were identified as potential terrorists at risk of radicalisation and referred to the police.

Since then the stereotype has widened to include a “new wave of UK youths with links to the African continent (Somalian/Nigerian, etc,) who could now be radicalised and mobilised.” The targeted racial groups recently gained some company under the “domestic extremists” umbrella, this time company not tarred with the ‘Islamist” brush. In fact, since last year, the reached of the umbrella has widened considerably.

The increasing use in the news media of the label “domestic extremists”  has arisen within a developing pattern of ‘domestic terrorists’ or ‘domestic extremists’ representing the baddies in other mainstream media settings. A classic case in point, there are several, but for the sake of brevity I’ll cover this one, is the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.

Scott Creighton has written several articles analysing and commenting on the purposeful drift within the Batman movies to identify the villains of the films as what would be known in these days of Occupyspeak as the 99%…us, in other words.

Boycott the Batman: New Posters Pit the Elites and the Military Against Us

In them he describes how he takes exception to Director Christopher Nolan’s ‘rewriting of the Batman story to turn all of the super-villains into nothing more than radicalized homegrown terrorists’, adding that he ‘especially didn’t like what he has done to the character of Bane [in the latest film] taking the monstrously massive freak of nature into nothing more than a drug addicted enemy belligerent who seeks to use terror to go after the 1%ers.’

(For larger views, click on the image)

Who is the superhero fighting? Super villains, or us?

The problem with this Nolan terrorist is that he is borne of us. He is not super human, he isn’t a monster… he’s the proletariat and the underclass in Nolan’s fast approaching class warfare storm.

Bane is the terrorist stereotype that all the establishment dreads when the working classes decide they have had enough and dare to stand together, to rise.

The billionaire elites march into battle against us with the military at their side.

Predictive programming, pure and simple. (Predictive programming has been defined as “a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by society leaders. If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarised with them and will accept them as ‘natural progressions’, as Alan Watt calls it; thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion.” A future post will go into more detail on the topic.)

Meanwhile, I think this a good point to remind that in December 2011, in its “Terrorism/Extremism Update”,  a letter warning businesses about potential terrorist threats, City of London police listed Occupy London under the heading “Domestic Terrorists”.

Going back to the call for a national road blockade. I’ll say it again, I do think there is a need for Social Services abuses to be investigated, rectified where possible, and stopped. But I wonder about potential deeper reasons behind the call.

At first glance, the ‘team’ that run One Voice For The Kids seem to be what it says on the tin, but unless one has personal knowledge of the group as a group and/or individuals therein, I think it only sensible to question. At the end of the day, unless you know them, they’re just names on a screen. To my mind, the call for a road blockade came from an anonymous source. There may be a web presence with a list of organisation member names, but that doesn’t make them any less anonymous to me, or make their motives any more transparent. (Some thoughts on anonymity and Anonymous can be read in An Anonymous Tip)*


Update (12.07.12)

A couple of days ago, the name Lee Hazledean appeared in the national and alternative media. Hazledean, the pseudonym of a whistleblower claiming to be a well known journalist for a London TV Show, revealed that he had infiltrated the notorious private security company G4S which is currently running security in the lead up to the Olympics.  Apart from his view that security training and officers were so appalling that the safety and security of the London 2012 Olympics was in jeopardy, some of the things he reported such as “200,000 casket linings” could be explained away as prudent precautionary measures. (The so-called casket linings have elsewhere been described as plastic coffins and connected with the type of coffin seen in the now operational FEMA camps in America.) Some other things such 100,000 extra UN troops  needed explanation.

Following on from that, today’s news reports are of G4S admitting it wouldn’t be able to supply all 10,000 security staff to patrol the Olympics. Instead, thousands of troops will be stepping in, many who have just returned from Afghanistan. Curiously, the actual number of troops who will be deployed in addition to the 38,000 already scheduled varies considerably from media outlet to media outlet. Whatever the number, its maybe fortunate then that, if ‘Hazledean’ was correct, there were already 100,000 troops coming in via Woolwich barracks made up of regular British Forces, American regular army and European troops, under the direction of the United Nations.


Back to the Olympics. For sometime now there’s been background information and speculation about the event being passed around the Internet. The presence of so much ‘smoke’ has moved me to look to see whether there is a fire, a smokescreen, or if its the condensation from too much hot air. Disturbingly, there appears to be the smouldering beginnings of what could become a conflagration, literally.

Against the security backdrop described above, there are those who have pointed out that the scene has been set for another state false flag incident. For those with more time on their hands than I have, there’s a mountain of data produced with search terms like ‘London Olympics false flag’. It wouldn’t be the first time, rather it would follow a pattern that stretches back a long way.

Below is a video that recently caught my attention. It’s the official Chinese Euro 2012 promotion video. Make of it what you will.

<a href=""></a>

As I said, there’s a mountain of data available, but at the end of the day, it’s all speculation. Apart from the possible advantage gained in persuading one to be anywhere other than London whilst the Olympics are on, and other ‘just in case’ preparations, another benefit from reviewing the projections and predictions could come in the event of something actually happening (which to be honest, after trawling through reams of data, I can’t see not). As we’ve seen time and again, and as history shows, ‘terror’ events always precede the imposition of aggressive legislation, domestic security control, and/or international military action. Foreknowledge of predictions of possible scenarios enable you to, as Kipling said,  ‘keep your head when all about you are losing theirs’.

One of the most well-known researchers who have developed theories regarding the Olympics was Rik Clay. Following the release of his thesis through his blog and an interview on an internet radio show, Clay died suddenly. The verdict of suicide has been challenged by some. It may be that he took his life with his own hand, but as you will read there is current technology that could easily be used to drive someone to such an act.

An ebook of Clay’s work regarding the London Olympics, London – Zion – 2012 are you ready for the Grand Illusion? can be downloaded from here*, one of the few places it is available. It contains a generous helping of those trigger words that get skeptics knees jerking and, although there are too few source references for my liking, the research is wide-ranging and in-depth. He connects dots that, whilst valid data in themselves, I wouldn’t necessarily have connected in the same way. but, and this is important,  it’s not essential that people reading it accept anything he writes. I’ll say that again, it doesn’t matter what you feel or think about the material. To me the value of the book lies in, as I say, foreknowledge of predictions of possible scenarios. The same seems to have been in Clay’s mind when he stated, “I shall start by stating my intentions. With my research, I do not intend to cause panic or fear, or to create a platform for prejudice and hate. I publish these views in order to simply raise awareness. To raise awareness on the grounds, that if indeed something does transpire during the London Olympics 2012, you can observe the event with a critical eye. It is my intention to ensure we shall not be duped!”

One of the predictions put forward by Clay is a staged alien invasion, featuring UFOs which would be made to appear courtesy of highly refined holgraph technology, which would be used at that time to unite humanity against the perceived common enemy. A wide variety of sociopolitical researchers are unanimous in their belief that the ‘endgame’ target of the world controller’s is a one world government along with a single religion and a single currency.

The concept of a single currency has already moved out of the realm of speculation into the everyday speech of economists who seem keen to point out that such would solve current global financial problems.

It’s safe to say that a stereotypical terrorist attack is no longer sufficient to implement a global unification strategy. As Rik Clay says, an event is required with the magnitude of a biblical second coming, or a threat from outer-space.

Is that too far-out for you? In June former UK Ministry of Defence UFO expert Nick Pope publicly stated that massive summer events like the Olympics would be a prime time for an alien encounter, He warned: ‘With the summer of mass events we are all on high alert for terrorism. But we must also cast our eyes further afield and be prepared for even the most seemingly unfathomable.”

He went on to say,  ‘The government must – and has planned – for the worst-case scenario: alien attack and alien invasion.

‘Space shuttles, lasers and directed-energy weapons are all committed via the Alien Invasion War Plan to defence against any alien ships in orbit. The TA and the Reserves would be called out and conscription potentially introduced.

Now, up to this point, any claims made by individuals regarding UFOs has been rubbished by the establishment and its media mouthpiece, yet here is a government ‘expert’ making projections in a matter-of-fact way as if the existence of extraterrestrials were an accepted given.  Also remember what I said about predictive programming? If not, go back and read it, this is important. Talking of predictive programming, have you seen the official Olympic promotional films, the little one-eyed aliens Wenlock and Mandeville series? The mini UFOs flying around London? Check ’em out.

It may seem unrelated at first but, for a number of years, people around the world have been investigating the regular spraying of chemicals in the skies around the globe. There are a variety of reasons put forward for the practice commonly known as ‘chemtrail spraying’, some official, some independently researched and some speculated. Again, there is a mountain of publicly-available data (of varying quality) and several documentaries, What in the World are they Spraying? and Don’t Talk About the Weather being two such. After looking into the issue, I would say that there was no single reason for the spraying, that it appears to have multiple applications.

In the context of this post, the article Weather Modification – Demystifying Chemtrails with Scientific Proof* has the following to say:

This isn’t just a random occurrence. What I believe ‘they’ are doing is spraying this chemical into the upper atmosphere so that nanocrystals grow just under the sodium layer in the atmosphere allowing the holographic projections to be 100% more effective. Others have suggested that these chemtrails are for weather modification, allowed HAARP to be more precise and efficient, and even more have further suggested it is ‘them’ spraying us with diseases. The science points to the theory that ‘they’ are spray painting the sky into a movie screen.

The following patent details are provided:


Light scattering pigment powder particles, surface treated to minimize inparticle cohesive forces, are dispensed from a jet mill deagglomerator as separate single particles to produce a powder contrail having maximum visibility or radiation scattering ability for a given weight material.


In conjunction with the DNA barium releases, Avefria I and II, an experiment was undertaken to determine if radio communication was possible off the base of a striated plasma created by these barium releases. A transmitting station was set up to broadcast a steady signal at two HF frequencies toward the base of the barium striations and two receiving stations listened for signal returns on the two frequencies. (The chosen geometry prevented reflections off the sides of the barium cloud from affecting the experiment). One station heard substantial returns while the other heard nothing. Data from the first station provide an estimate of the reflection cross sections for the base of the striated barium cloud. The negative result from the second station arises partly from limited sensitivity of equipment but the upper limit on cross section was less than that seen from the first station. This suggests a directional character for the signal reflected from the base of the cloud.

WHY THEY ARE RELEASING IT INTO THE SKY,686,605.PN.&OS=PN/4,686,605&RS=PN/4,686,605


A method and apparatus for altering at least one selected region which normally exists above the earth’s surface. The region is excited by electron cyclotron resonance heating to thereby increase its charged particle density. In one embodiment, circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation is transmitted upward in a direction substantially parallel to and along a field line which extends through the region of plasma to be altered. The radiation is transmitted at a frequency which excites electron cyclotron resonance to heat and accelerate the charged particles. This increase in energy can cause ionization of neutral particles which are then absorbed as part of the region thereby increasing the charged particle density of the region.

US Army Research Laboratory briefing February 2009 (declassified) 3-D Holographic Display Using Strontium Barium Niobate


An innovative technique for generating a three-dimensional holographic display using strontium barium niobate (SBN) is discussed. The resultant image is a holograph that can be viewed in real time over a wide perspective or field of view (FOV). The holographic image is free from system-induced aberrations and has a uniform, high quality over the entire FOV. The enhanced image quality results from using a phase-conjugate read beam generated from a second photorefractive crystal acting as a double pumped phase-conjugate mirror (DDPCM). Multiple three-dimensional images have been stored in the crystal via wavelength multiplexing.

So, the above shows how it’s possible to project holographic images onto the layer that’s been artificially created in the ionosphere.

Twenty years ago Quebecian Serge Monast warned of a technology that fits the description of the above, which he called Project Blue Beam (sometimes written as Bluebeam). Description of the four-stage project includes reference to technologies that employ electromagnetic radiation of gigahertz frequencies (microwaves) and other extremely low frequencies (ELF, VLF and LF). The process employed by such ELF technology are described in various US Defense Department publications, including one entitled, ‘ The Electromagnetic Spectrum and Low Intensity Conflict,’ by Captain Paul E. Tyler, Medical Commandant, US Navy, which is included in a collection entitled, ‘Low Intensity Conflict and Modern Technology Edict,’ by Lt. Col David G. Dean, USAF. The paper was delivered in 1984 and the collection published 1986 by Air University Press, Maxwell Airforce Base, Alabama.

This type of weaponised technology was first reported in action in the Gulf War in 1991.

(March 23, 1991) ITV News Bureau, Ltd. –Sources in Dhahran today revealed what might have been the true reason for the seemingly illogical and apparently suicidal attack by Iraqi troops on the deserted city of Al-Khafji, located just 12 miles south of the Kuwaiti border. The report indicates that the top priority objective of the Iraqi strike across the border was a successful attempt to destroy a small, portable FM radio station that had been installed on the roof of the tallest building in the town of Al-Khafji by the U. S. Defense Department’s PsyOps Branch.

With the destruction of Saddam Hussein’s military command and control system, communications with Iraqi troops in Kuwait are now largely carried out in a very primitive manner by utilizing Iraq’s commercial FM radio stations located in the small Iraqi towns adjacent to Kuwait’s western border. Military orders are encoded and then transmitted by Baghdad’s military FM radio station YIHS. These signals are received and re-broadcast, in turn, by designated FM stations located between Baghdad and the Kuwaiti border until the programming arrives at the designated “control” station of the day which then broadcasts directly to the troops in Kuwait on exactly 100.00 MHz (megahertz), which is continuously monitored by all.

In order to nullify this Iraqi military line of communications (LOC), the U. S. PsyOps organization attached to the U S Central Command in Dhahran installed a portable FM broadcast transmitter, a gasoline-electric generator and a continuous tape recording system on top of the tallest building in the deserted city of Al-Khafji. The station transmitted on 100.00 MHz and its power output was adjusted to cover up the transmission of the Iraqi station operating on exactly the same frequency.

The clandestine station programming consisted of patriotic and religious music and intentionally vague, confusing and contradictory military orders and information to the Iraqi soldiers in the Kuwait Theater of Command (KTO).

The size and power of enemy forces was always intentionally exaggerated. Surrender was encouraged.

According to statements made by captured and deserting Iraqi soldiers, however, the most devastating and demoralising programming was the first known military use of the new, high tech, type of subliminal messages referred to as ulta-high frequency “Silent Sounds” or “Silent Subliminals”. (See Newsweek, July 30th, 1990, Page 61.)

Although completely silent to the human ear, the negative messages placed on the tapes alongside the audible programming by PsyOps psychologists were clearly perceived by the subconscious minds of the Iraqi soldiers and the silent messages completely demoralised them and instilled a perpetual feeling of fear and hopelessness in their minds.                                                                                Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Since then there have been reports of technology that fits the bill being deployed in civilian settings. I’d also remind you of the Raytheon Active Denial System and LRAD technology* mentioned earlier.

As I pointed out in Psyclone, this technology allows one to record specific human emotion and broadcast it. For example, the brain patterns of one experiencing fear and insecurity could be extrapolated and recorded, and then be transmitted to other people. The transmission would trigger the same emotion in the other person who, if the frequencies were modulated along a frequency below or above human audibility, would presume the feelings to be coming from themselves.

The abstract of the “Silent Subliminal Presentation System” patent* reads:

“A silent communications system in which nonaural carriers, in the very low or very high audio frequency range or in the adjacent ultrasonic frequency spectrum, are amplitude or frequency modulated with the desired intelligence and propagated acoustically or vibrationally, for inducement into the brain, typically through the use of loudspeakers, earphones or piezoelectric transducers. The modulated carriers may be transmitted directly in real time or may be conveniently recorded and stored on mechanical, magnetic or optical media for delayed or repeated transmission to the listener.”

So, the possibility of an “event with the magnitude of a biblical second coming, or a threat from outer-space”  isn’t so far out after all.

But a “biblical second coming”?

Another part of Serge Monast’s Project Blue Beam revelations (published in 1996) dealt with the religious aspect of the new world order and its deception and seduction on a massive scale. According to Monast, the deception will consist of multiple holographic images to different parts of the world, each receiving a different image according to the specific national, regional religion. Not a single area will be excluded. With computer animation and sounds appearing to emanate from the very depths of space, astonished ardent followers of the various creeds will witness their own returned messiahs in convincing lifelike reality.

Then the projections of Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Krishna, etc., will merge into one after correct explanations of the mysteries and revelations will have been disclosed. This one god will explain that the various scriptures have been misunderstood and misinterpreted, and that the religions of old are responsible for turning brother against brother, and nation against nation, therefore old religions must be abolished to make way for the new age new world religion, representing the one god they see before them.

A little thought presents the possibility that elements of the above could be configured slightly differently to achieve the same aim.

Sounds wacky, I know, but I hope that after reading what came before the preceding paragraphs there are a lot less knees jerking. But as I said before, it doesn’t matter if you don’t believe it. At least now, after reading the above, if something that’s described in this post does happen, (anytime, not just over the Olympics), you won’t be so easily taken in by the official narrative.

Knowledge is power. Your ignorance is their bliss

Radiation Strategy: Bentonite Clay

This post is the second in a series of strategy posts that follow on from Facts about Fukushima. See also Radiation Strategy: Spirulina


Years ago I discovered the amazing detoxification properties of Bentonite and have used it for myself and others in a range of conditions, including arsenic poisoning, that required a rigorous detox. Bentonite, also referred to as Montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays used to treat both internal and external disorders. Bentonite can be used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack or in the bath and, in skin care recipes. Internally it can be added to water, glazed on food, or taken in capsules.

Bentonite is very unusual in the fact that once it becomes hydrated, the electrical and molecular components of the clay rapidly change and produce an “electrical charge”. Its highest power lies in the ability to absorb toxins, impurities, heavy metals and other internal contaminants. Bentonite clay’s structure assists it in attracting and soaking up poisons on its exterior wall and then slowly drawing them into the interior centre of the clay where it is held in a sort of repository.

The following article gives a good overview and provides a number of useful links.

From the Sherrie Questioning All blog

I have been researching and gathered many links and information about how people can get radiation out of their body and protect themselves.

This is a page with links to all kinds of information on various ways to help yourself and natural ways of pain relief.

I have found over and over again – something everyone needs to have at your disposal for getting radiation out of your body – is Bentonite Clay.

Bentonite Clay is a natural volcanic clay that is found in the midwest of the United States.  It will take 180 times of itself of toxins and radiation out of your body.  I use it on my skin and areas I have pain and it has worked wonderfully.  I mix it with apple cider vinegar instead of using water.  The jars say “not for internal use” but since I buy 100% natural clay I do use it internally – as many sites have said – it absorbs the toxins from your body and gets them out.  It is a miracle type clay for natural healing. ** Very important – do not use a metal spoon or anything metal with the bentonite clay, as it changes it’s properties when metal is touched to it.  Use only a wooden spoon and a glass bowl or cup.**spesifikasi android

Here are many links for you to look at about Bentonite Clay.  This includes a link of testimonials of what the clay has done for people – including curing their bulging disc etc.

An example of what clay does from this link. –

If you haven’t heard of the wonderful healing benefits of Bentonite clay, you’re in for a treat! Would you like to find an inexpensive, yet effective product that could clean out your colon, detoxify your body of harmful chemicals, radiation, heavy metals, and bacteria, strengthen your immune system, purify your blood, heal ulcers and wounds internally and externally, dissolve tumors, cysts, age spots, keloid scars, normalize your pH, create a balance of minerals in your body, alleviate pain, and more? Clay can do all this, and more!

Clay’s ability to attract toxins, bacteria, heavy metals, and other noxious substances comes from its positive electrical charge. With toxic and unhealthy substances tending to have a negative electrical charge, they are irresistibly attracted to the radiantly positive pole of the clay. This includes all unhealthy substances, even radiation!

After the meltdown of Chernobyl in Russia, clay was added to chocolate bars and distributed to the masses to reduce the effects of the nuclear radiation. In addition, the scientists who went in afterward painted their bodies with a layer of clay mud before donning their radiation resistant gear to absorb any radiation that might have leaked through their suits and render it essentially harmless.

During the Balkan War the British army used clay for cholera. The mortality rate was 60% for all soldiers who contracted this disease. However, when clay was used, the mortality rate went down from 60% to an amazing 3%. Since then the British army uses clay for treatment of poisoning.

“During the First World War, the Russian soldiers received 200 grams of clay along with their rations, and it was added to mustard in several French regiments, who remained free of the dysentery, which ravaged nearby regiments.”

What Radiation effects are to what parts of your body and home remedies – this is a great link for all kinds of information on radiation and what foods to eat.

Note: Most health-related references to Bentonite neglect to mention that, out of that context, this type of clay is also used by potters and ceramic artists to make a fine slip clay. Obviously, ceramicists would go to suppliers who sold larger units (bigger bags!) cheaper than the much smaller health/beauty-packaged products. According to this article another potential difference between pharmaceutical grade bentonite and other bentonite is that pharmaceutical grade bentonite may have been irradiated.

Radiation Strategy: Spirulina

This post is the first of a series of strategy posts that follow on from Facts about Fukushima.

Health Benefits of Spirulina:

According to research Spirulina contains:

3 times more protein then fish
10 times more calcium then milk
50 times more iron then spinach
100 times more betacarotene (vitamin A) then carrots
5 times more chlorophyll then green leaves…

  • Spirulina is one of nature’s near-perfect foods, as it is up to 70 percent protein by weight and is rich in B vitamins (including B-12), minerals, GLA, natural iodine and phycocyanin
  • Spirulina was found to have very positive effects for radiation sickness when given to children exposed to radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear accident
  • Many studies have found that Spirulina can serve as a “radiation shield,” helping protect your thyroid gland, strengthen your immune system and blood, protect your kidneys, and bind to heavy radioactive isotopes so they can be more quickly eliminated from your body
  • While spirulina is an excellent source of nutrition, you must be very careful about its source, since it can be contaminated with heavy metals and other environmental pollutants

5 Grams Daily of This REVERSED Severe Radiation Poisoning in Chernobyl Children… (Dr. Mercola, Nov. 09 2011):

Due to the many requests I received from concerned readers asking for guidance about strategies to help protect against radioactive fallout in the wake of the Japanese nuclear disaster, I recently wrote an article addressing those concerns.

Although the suggestions I made were all based on the latest scientific research, my investigation will be continuing in this area so that I can further refine those recommendations.

And as I learn more, I will pass along that information to you.

That said, one specific superfood that jumps to the top of the list is spirulina, and it’s this very special blue-green “algae” that I want to expand upon today.

There is a great deal of research about spirulina’s effectiveness in insulating you from the effects of radiation.

Spirulina was actually used to treat children exposed to chronic low-levels of radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which I’ll be covering in more detail below.

According to a scientific review of spirulina’s benefits in the Journal of Applied Phycology:

“Up to very recently, the interest in Spirulina was mainly in its nutritive value. Currently, however, numerous people are looking into the possible therapeutic effects of Spirulina.

Many pre-clinical studies and a few clinical studies suggest several therapeutic effects ranging from reduction of cholesterol and cancer to enhancing the immune system, increasing intestinal lactobacilli, reducing nephrotoxicity by heavy metals and drugs and radiation protection.”

Spirulina is ranked by AARP as the #1 superfood for extending your lifespan, and the UN has identified it as a primary ingredient in the fight against malnutrition worldwide. But what exactly is spirulina? You may be surprised!

Spirulina: One of Nature’s Near-Perfect Foods

Spirulina is similar to sea vegetables such as dulse, kelp, nori, kombu, arame, wakame, etc. Along with its cousin chlorella (another of my favorites) spirulina is a member of the “blue-green” family—but this family is actually not algae.

Although you will often hear the term “blue-green algae,” spirulina and its kin are actually cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are classified as bacteria because their genetic material is not organized in a membrane-bound nucleus. Unlike other bacteria, they have chlorophyll and use the sun as an energy source, in the way plants and algae do.

Spirulina is primarily produced by two species: Arthrospira platensis and Arthrospira maxima.

One of the special traits of spirulina is its rich protein content—it’s up to 70 percent protein by weight and contains all of the essential amino acids. Records of the Spanish conquistadors suggest that the Aztecs consumed spirulina as a food source, and the Kanembu people of Central Africa harvested it from what is now called Lake Chad.

Wild spirulina grows in the alkaline lakes of Mexico and on the African continent, although it is commercially grown and harvested all over the world. It reproduces quickly, and because the individual organisms tend to stick together, it is easy to harvest. Commercial production of spirulina is estimated to reach 220,000 tons by the year 2020.

Japan is the largest producer—and also the largest consumer—of spirulina.

Spirulina Offers Across-the-Board Health Benefits

Spirulina is high in various B vitamins (including B-12), beta-carotene and other carotenoids, and minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, manganese, potassium and zinc. It is also a great source of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid for your heart and joints.

Many of these vitamins and minerals have strong antioxidant properties, which help you eliminate toxins and fight disease. Spirulina is highly effective for heavy metal detoxification, and many studies now point to spirulina as a natural cancer-fighting agent. Research on spirulina suggests it offers potential benefits for a wide variety of health issues, including:

Digestion, tempering appetite, stabilizing blood sugar and reducing diabetes risk Balancing gut flora and fighting Candida Killing viruses
Improving blood Reducing inflammation Preventing eye diseases
Normalizing cholesterol Protecting your liver, heart, kidneys, and brain Reducing allergic reactions
Fighting cancer Boosting your immune system Preventing/treating thyroid disorders

But what is it about spirulina that explains its ability to protect you from the damaging effects of ionizing radiation? One of the explanations is cyanobacteria’s unique blue pigment, phycocyanin. Spirulina is 16 percent phycocyanin by weight. Phycocyanin attaches to spirulina’s membranes to impart the distinctive bluish color.

Besides being a pigment, phycocyanin is also a nitrogen storage molecule. The nitrogen atoms bind with heavy metals, such as radioactive caesium-137, strontium-90, and potassium-40, hence “cleansing” these radioactive metals from your body.

It All Started with Chernobyl

The benefits of spirulina for radiation treatment really came to light just after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, near the Belarus border of Ukraine.

When the Chernobyl reactor melted down, approximately 134 plant workers and firefighters were exposed to high doses of radiation—800 to 16,000 mSv—and developed acute radiation sickness.

Of those 134 workers, 28 died within 3 months of exposure.

In total, more than 160,000 children and 146,000 cleanup workers became victims of radiation poisoning as a result of living and working in that radiotoxic environment, raising the incidence of birth defects, leukemia, anemia, cancers, thyroid disease, liver and bone marrow degeneration, and overall severely compromised immune systems.

According to Bill Bodri’s 2004 book How to Help Support the Body’s Healing After Intense Radioactive or Radiation Exposure, after the Chernobyl disaster a British company reportedly sent shipments of spirulina to clinics in Belarus to treat child victims of radiation sickness. Soviet physicians at the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk administered 5 grams of spirulina daily to some of the radiation-exposed children for 45 consecutive days.

They were amazed to see these children show rapid improvements, compared to the children who did not receive spirulina, in the following ways:

  • The spirulina-treated children showed bone marrow, spinal fluid, blood cell and liver regeneration.
  • Dangerously low white blood cell counts of about 1,000 (typical of leukemia) rose to 3,000 in only 20 days.
  • Urine radioactivity levels decreased by 50 percent in 20 days.

According to Bodri, “Health restoration was reported even when radiation sickness was so advanced that the children’s eyes were bulging out of their sockets.” And the results occurred despite ongoing radiation exposure from contaminated food and water.

Based on the Minsk results, the Belarus Ministry of Health concluded that spirulina accelerates the evacuation of radionuclides from the human body, without adverse side effects. Spirulina was particularly efficient at deactivating radioactive caesium from their bodies.

More Russian Studies Soon Followed—With Encouraging Results

A 1993 report (author L.P. Loseva) confirmed the 1991 findings about the benefits of spirulina for children with radiation sickness, leading to the awarding of a Russian patent for spirulina in the treatment of radiation sickness.

A follow up report (also written by Loseva in September of 1999 for the 8th International Congress of Applied Algology) concluded:

Spirulina platensis is an effective natural adsorbent of long-life radionuclides caesium-137, strontium-90, and potassium-40 and can lead to a reduction of radioactive contamination in children ages 10 to 16 years of age.”

There is also a report that younger children, aged 3 to 7, in Beryozovka (near Grodno on the Polish border) who were poisoned with radioactivity from Chernobyl, as well as simultaneous lead poisoning from a nearby glass factory, showed improvement after being treated with spirulina for 45 days.

Radiation causes Hematopoietic syndrome, marked by a three-way drop in blood cells: the result is infection (related to insufficient white cells), anemia (inadequate red blood cells), and bleeding (diminished platelets).  Spirulina helps with these symptoms. Physicians saw T-cell suppressors and beneficial hormones increase, and urine radioactivity decrease, in 83 percent of the children who received the treatment.

A Russian study (L. Evets, et al. 1994) involving 270 children living in highly radioactive areas found that the children’s elevated immunoglobulin E levels (IgE) were normalized by 5 grams of spirulina per day for 6 weeks. Normalizing IgE reduces allergic reactions.

Spirulina’s Glowing Reports as a “Radiation Shield”

It is thought that spirulina protects your body from radiation damage and helps it detoxify through a combination of the mechanisms outlined in the following table.

Spirulina has high natural iodine, which protects NOT ONLY your thyroid, but all glandular tissues in your body.
Spirulina is abundant in vitamins and minerals and antioxidants, which collectively promote healing and strengthen your immune system.
Spirulina is high in phytopigments (phycocyanin, chlorophyll, beta-carotene and other carotenoids), which enhance antioxidants and reduce free radical damage from radiation, as well as from pollutants, drugs and other environmental toxins. These pigments may also help explain spirulina’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Spirulina is high in metallo-thionine compounds (proteins combined with metals) that bind heavy radioactive isotopes and eliminate them from your body (Matsubara et al. “Radioprotective effect of metallo-thionine,” presented at Radial Rays Conference, Tokyo Japan 1985)
Scientists at the Gastro-Intestinal Laboratory at McGill University in Montreal demonstrated that alginates derived from Laminaria could reduce by 50 to 80 percent the amount of radioactive strontium absorbed through the intestine.
Spirulina is rich in highly bioavailable iron, which helps prevent anemia. A new study published in the journal Cellular and Molecular Biology in January 2011 confirms this effect, finding spirulina effective in the treatment of anemia and age-related immune dysfunction among senior citizens.
Spirulina has a number of blood-strengthening properties, as found by this 2001 animal study from China. The study concluded that spirulina has chemo-protective and radio-protective capabilities and shows potential for fighting cancer. Immune cells in your blood are highly radiosensitive and considered to be good indicators for biological effects taking place at the molecular level.
Spirulina somehow helps shield cells from gamma radiation, as shown by this study on the bone marrow of mice.
Spirulina helps to protect your kidneys, which are some of the FIRST organs to suffer damage after significant radiation exposure. Research suggests spirulina helps protect from the nephrotoxicity of cancer treatments, antibiotics and analgesics.

A great many more research studies about spirulina can be accessed here, demonstrating the wide array of spirulina’s health benefits.

WARNING About Contamination of Sea-Derived Nutrients

Typically, terrestrial vegetables provide enormous health benefits, but those from the sea can provide loads of additional benefits over land-based vegetables. But, just like eating fish, the issue of contamination is of major concern today.

You probably know I don’t advise eating fish, because most are now contaminated with heavy metals like mercury and chemicals like PCBs and dioxins. Unfortunately, most sea vegetables and cyanobacteria are similarly contaminated. So, while they are an ideal source of nutrition, you need to be VERY careful about which ones to consume.

If you are purchasing sea vegetables or spirulina that were harvested since the Japanese nuclear event, you will want to make sure they have been screened for radiation by an independent third party lab.

Dr. David Brownstein, an expert on iodine and your thyroid, sent a number of sea vegetable samples to labs and found most of them to be contaminated with heavy metals, actually containing bromine instead of iodine, which is the “toxic bully” of the halide group.

I believe that toxin-free sea vegetables and spirulina are likely the ideal way to obtain your iodine—just as toxin-free fish is the best source of animal based omega-3 fats. However, with all of the pollutants in today’s environment, those ideals are increasingly difficult to achieve.

Spirulina Dosing Recommendations

Assuming it’s from a pristine source, spirulina can be a tremendous nutritional supplement for you, your children, and your pets, providing highly bioavailable iodine and a bonanza of super-nutrients.

If you are going to start on a spirulina regimen, the recommended dosage is 3,000 mg per day for adults, and 500 to 1,500 mg for children, for use as a preventative. For therapeutic use, 10,000 to even 20,000 mg per day is required for adults.

Sources and additional information

Where There is no Dentist

Earlier in the year the post Where There is no Doctor provided readers with the medical handbook of the same name, arguably one of the most useful medical handbooks available. The handbook, which has been used as a resource by many aid workers worldwide, is also  a valuable resource for anyone who is interested or involved in improving health and medical care anywhere, independently from the medical industry.

Where There is no Dentist has been written for the same reason, (incidentally, by the prompting of Murray Dickson by David Werner, author of Where There is no Doctor), and, like that book, in the belief that:

  1. Health care is not only everyone’s right, but everyone’s responsibility.
  2. Informed self-care should be the main goal of any health program or activity.
  3. Ordinary people provided with clear, simple information can prevent and treat most common health problems in their own homes—earlier, cheaper, and often better than can doctors.
  4. Medical knowledge should not be the guarded secret of a select few, but should be freely shared by everyone.
  5. People with little formal education can be trusted as much as those with a lot. And they are just as smart.
  6. Basic health care should not be delivered, but encouraged.

Download the book from here, read it, share it, save it on that memory stick/flash drive that you’re saving all that other information that might well prove useful in a Post-Event scenario (after the shit’s hit the fan!) Don’t worry about copyright infringements, Hesperian, the publisher of the both handbooks mentioned (and more), ‘encourages others to copy, reproduce, or adapt to meet local needs any or all parts of this book, including the illustrations, provided that the parts reproduced are distributed free or at cost – not for profit.’  Kinda restores your faith, don’ it.

10 Skills Needed to Thrive in a Post-Collapse World

10 Skills Needed to Thrive in a Post-Collapse World

Knowledge is something that no one can take from you. It’s the eternal wealth that will help you thrive in a Post-Collapse world.

Jeffrey Green
Activist Post

Some experts see the perfect storm emerging for a dramatic collapse of Western civilization claiming we’ve reached environmental, economic, and geopolitical tipping points. Clearly, some skills will be far more valuable than others if this societal breakdown occurs.  Sorry bankers, lawyers, and accountants, there won’t be a need for you in a post-collapse world.

Before we quantify the skill sets that will be viable, it is important to define the severity of a “post-collapse” scenario. When taken as a whole, together these tipping points could potentially converge to create a post-apocalyptic Mad Max-type world for the vast majority of humanity.  However, given the advanced technology that we possess today, it is unlikely to ever become quite that primitive ever again. Surely there will be pockets of energy and food independence no matter what possible scenario unfolds, but the vast majority may be left to fend for themselves.

It would take a serious cataclysmic earth event like a super volcano, a meteor impact, major electromagnetic pulse event, or dramatic pole shift to effect the entirety of humanity.  Man-made events like nuclear war, environmental damage, or total economic collapse, no matter how devastating, will be somewhat isolated and contained to specific areas and populations. Incidentally, every nation or territory that has experienced these man-made catastrophes has roared back to life in less than one generation. The only example of nuclear survival was in Japan, while the largest recent big economic collapse was the break-up of the Soviet Union.  In both cases those countries went through a very tough period, but ultimately they persevered.

For sake of this article, let’s assume that some level of devastation is caused by each type of tipping point in the United States.  Our ever escalating wars finally reach our shores by way of long-range nuclear missiles, total economic collapse occurs rendering the dollar worthless, and we would likely have less electricity and water than Iraq did after Bush’s “shock and awe” campaign. Gasoline and oil supplies would likely be down to a trickle, halting all supply lines of food and other goods to big box stores.  Factory farming will be impossible without cheap oil products readily available.  The suffering will be dramatic.

The only question will become, how do the citizens react?  Both the USSR and early 1950s Japan were far more agrarian, and far less dependent on big box stores than America currently is.  American dependence on long supply lines, interconnected yet vulnerable electric grid, and pharmaceutical-based healthcare may lead to a more severe breakdown of society than witnessed in those countries.  Although, innovative technology for alternative energy and agriculture practices will play a part in surviving; but they can only help the few with the knowledge, means, and stability to use them.  And stability will be in low supply for some time, resulting in only small groups with relative comfort — those who planned for the worse. However, as an optimist, I believe that after the initial chaos Americans will rediscover solidarity for one-another, much like they did after 9/11, but this time it will be more sustained out of absolute necessity.

Many articles have been written about how to survive the coming collapse, or what is needed to survive, but not many articles have been written about what skills will have value in a post-collapse world.  Imagine fulfilling human necessity without consistent fuel or electricity, large-scale food production, or fully-stocked pharmacies and hospitals.  The only form of wealth in a collapsed civilization is the knowledge and skills to produce something of human value.

Here are 10 invaluable skills that will likely help you sustain yourself in a hand-made local world:

1. Organic Gardening and Seed Saving: Skills involving food production will be the most valuable in a post-collapse society. Learning to grow your own food is a must.  Obviously, it is necessary to feed your family, but you will also be able to trade your abundance for other items. Additionally, learning to save seeds will also provide another excellent means of trade.

2. Food Processing and Preservation: Learning to process and preserve foods will be another huge skill in a post-collapse world. Taking seasonal abundance and preserving it for future consumption or trade will be vital.  Remember, learning to do this with limited electricity is a must. This can also include learning to brew beer, mead, vinegar, or other alcoholic beverages from meager ingredients.

3. Hunting, Fishing, and Gathering:  Learning to fish and hunt are essential to survival. Having the proper gear and training will be priceless after the collapse of modern civilization.  Having reference guides for edible plants in your region, repairing weaponstrapping wild game, and fishing are great tools to have if you haven’t the time to learn them now. In regards to weapons, your ability to use them also gives you the skill of working security.

4. Animal Husbandry: Notice the first four categories are related to food production.  It’s that important.  Just gaining knowledge of one of these categories will give you an invaluable skill to thrive in a post-apocalyptic world.  Knowledge of animal husbandry can provide endless amounts of sustainable meat, eggs, and milk to you and your tribe.

5. Construction: Construction skills will be very important in a shattered civilization.  These skills, especially without power tools, are not something you learn overnight.  If you have some basic skills it may be worth learning a few techniques for building small structures with crude hand tools.  There are many books teaching anyone how to build basic cabins, sheds, and composting outhouses.

6. Alternative Energy and Fuels: Having the knowledge to implement alternative energy systems will make you a wealthy survivor in a “dark” world. You can learn to build your own alternative energy systems, or you can purchase back up solar generators in preparation for emergencies. There are also small fuel refinery systems available like the biodiesel Fuelmeister, and the new invention from Japan that turns plastic into oil.  Knowledge of how to create energy would be invaluable when oil is scarce.

7. Water Purification: Since it’s difficult to pump well water without electricity and with surface water likely to be contaminated, clean water will be in very limited supply.  Learning to purify water will allow you thrive during this time. You can also purchase water filters for your go-bag that will last weeks, and you can have back-up tablets should you need them.  However, the skill and knowledge to purify water should be the goal as that can never run out.

8. Basic First Aid and Natural Medicine:  This is another skill that can take years to develop and learn, but that will be crucial when supply lines of pharmaceuticals are cut off and hospitals are over-run. Knowledge of growing herbal gardens for making medicine at home will prove to be very important.  Learning basic procedures for stitching wounds, CPR, and more will also be of great assistance.  Being the tribe’s shaman with a natural medicine chest is a prestigious position.

9. Mechanics: Mechanics for cars, motorcycles, tractors and other machinery will likely be in high demand.  In addition, bicycle mechanics will also fair well in world where fuel is very expensive or hard to come by.  These are also skills that are not learned over night, but it will be wise to at least have access to books or how-to videos.

10. Soap and Candle Making: With long supply lines decimated and electricity on the fritz, soap and candle makers will provide a valuable product. Clearly some preparation of storing raw materials may be needed to achieve trade-able levels of these goods.  Even if you just had the knowledge to make soap or candles just for your immediate tribe, you will be much better off for it.

You’ll notice that many of these skills also fall into the category of what you would need to be self-sufficient. Again, learning all of these skills will be virtually impossible, especially if the collapse isn’t that far off as many predict.  Determine which skills that most appeal to you and focus on them by studying and acquiring the tools needed. Since you can’t become an expert in everything it may be wise to recruit tribe members with various survival skills.  It will also be beneficial to build up your library of “how to” books and videos for tasks that you are not proficient in.  You can download any video from Youtube by using and build your library into an external hard drive.

Remember, knowledge of and skills to produce human necessities will be the only form of wealth creation in a hand-made world. Knowledge is something that no one can take from you. It’s the eternal wealth that will help you thrive in a Post-Collapse world. Get Prepared Now!
